Adventures in Asiatown

Phoebe and Ben

Samples from Park To Shop

Basil seed drink with honey, grass jelly drink, ferment red date bean curd, fried gluten (irregular) with peanut and soy sauce, wax gourd beverage, and durian pudding.
First course, Durian pudding and wax gourd beverage

The consistency was like hard slimy jello.
The smell was sweet with a side of bad.
It tasted truly awful. 
There were chunks of durian that were very hard and almost inedible.
The after taste was surprisingly sweet. 

Ferment red date bean curd with made in Taiwan caused a feeling of intense euphoria and bewilderment followed by involuntary facial contortions.

Ben was no longer smiling after ingesting this large chunk. 
The texture was like soft cheese
It tasted like medium spicy vinegar cheese
It expires in 1 year but when was it made?

Ben and I cleanse our palates with basil seed drink with honey. 
It smelled like bubble gum and had a sweet flavor. 

Phoebe sampled the red date bean curd on an onion and chive Sky Flakes cracker.

Phoebe said, "I think it's expired"

Grass Jelly Drink
Smelled like minty medicine.
The chunks of jelly were disconcerting but still drinkable according to Ben.
He said that it gets better the more you drink.

Fried Gluten (irregular) with peanut and soy sauce was not bad.


Sesame sweet balls
Sesame sweet ball, tree stump chocolate with a cookie center (very much like Twix without the caramel), and french cookies.


  1. I just laughed so hard that my stomach hurts. More, even, than it did after eating all that weirdness!

  2. when i was at kent state my studio neighbor would make a cookie like the sesame ball thingys. they were delish. however i'm pretty sure i would be allergic to half of everything you ate on this post.
    also a flipbook of this would be awesome.
